Despite being up for a Grammy this year, Regina Spektor will not be attending music's biggest night on Sunday. Then again, she does have a pretty good excuse.

It turns out the 33-year-old singer is pregnant!

Yep. Spektor broke the big news via Facebook on Thursday, Jan. 23, that she and husband Jack Dishel are expecting their first child together.

"Hi there friends! I was so happy to be nominated for my first Grammy!" Spektor wrote. "I would have definitely gone to LA for all the fun, in a party dress and with bells on, if I wasn't super pregnant at the moment. (!!!!!!!!!!). Jack and I are very excited to be expecting a brand new human together!!!"

She continued, "I've been spending most of my time writing songs, dreaming up the new record, cooking soup, eating soup, and being very grateful for the people in my life- family, friends, and you... So I'm glad to share the news, and I wish everyone who is going to the Grammys an amazing night! Thank you to the Grammy peeps for nominating 'You've Got Time'! I'll see you from the couch."

Spektor is nominated for Best Song Written for Visual Media for "You've Got Time," the theme song for the Netflix original series Orange Is the New Black.
